Awesome. The guy stepped-up & represented.

If this hero needs a legal fund,, I'm first in-line with a donation.

Interesting story. They didn't say anything about how or if they disarmed the guy with the gun.

Pretty cool that Costa Rican authorities did the right thing and just let them go. I could see things turning out much differently in many countries, maybe even Mexico. Costa Rica values tourist business.

They killed him. Good enough for me.

Its refreshing to hear your opinion on this matter - after 4 years its good we can agree on something. As BP would say about carbon footprints... It's a start.

Things would have been different if the incident had occurred in Mexico? I'd be curious to hear what you think might have happened to the senior citizen if the incident had taken place in say... Berkeley or maybe San Francisco and lets say for the sake of argument the perp bad been an illegal alien.

What do you think would have happened to the person that defended himself?
